Hilarious hijinx of one man’s cat!
Simon’s Cat proved his authority in the house. He returned victorious from his adventures beyond the garden fence. He prevailed after the chaotic arrival of a new kitten. Now he takes on the world! Illustrated in glorious full color, this volume explodes from the page with mesmerizing levels of detail. Simon’s Cat films have over 280 million YouTube views!
If you’re a cat love and you are not acquainted with Simon’s cat – well then you really need to be. This adorable – terrorizing little guy will wreck your house and your heart. This graphic novel doesn’t really contain a story. Each page is a story unto itself of the mischief Simon’s cat makes. There is even a page of stickers somewhere near the end. This would make the perfect gift for a cat loving friend because they could truly relate to all of the scenes herein. If you haven’t already check out the Simon’s Cat youtube channel!
Art – 5 stars – Adorable, simple and fun
Story – 4 – not really a story – just a hijinx and hilarity that kitties get themselves in to
Overall – 5 – I loved it – it’s a tabletop style book in my opinion but one I’ll share with my son.
Ghosts come in all shapes and sizes!
Cut two eyeholes into a bedsheet and BOO! You’ve got yourself a classic Halloween icon. But what happens if you tie the bedsheet in knots? What happens when you set it on fire, hang it from a clothesline, or put a llama underneath it? 100 Ghosts is a brilliantly simple artistic exploration of an icon as familiar as a grinning jack-o-lantern or an arched black cat. It’s a delightful gift for adults, kids, and anyone who enjoys spooky design.
These ghosts really do come in all kinds. 100 Ghosts is a cutesy little book with no real story per say – I guess you could consider it a fashion show of ghosts. They are each done up in their own little way. Whether they are pregnant, a cyclops or a nudist most of these little guys will give you a smile. The only downside I would see to this is that I do wish there were a bit of a story running through it because once you’ve gone through the book once I don’t see that you’d have much desire to go through it again. It would make a good Halloween novelty item for a White Elephant party.
Art – 4 stars – Simple tabletop type book, novelty
Story – N/A
Overall – 4 stars – A cute novelty book, quickly flipped thru once but likely not something you’ll look thru again.
